Every four years, as we wrap up the Summer Olympic Games and start discussing in earnest who we'll be voting for in November, the same sort of scenario plays out. There are two candidates presented to the people, Team Red vs. Team Blue. They usually begin the campaign with a few good selling points about themselves before turning over to an all-out smear campaign against their opponents. And come November, America usually ends up voting against the candidate they definitely don’t want in the White House rather than for the candidate they do.
